This week: Renee Henze, global marketing and channel development director, Dupont Biomaterials, talks about the challenges for the apparel and textiles sector in developing real circular economy models, and the roles of designers and fabric manufacturers in moving the industry towards achieving them.
Henze outlines the spectrum of what consumers want their favourite brands to do to promote circularity – and how greater desire for environmental sustainability from consumers is driving the sector forwards.
Plus: risks for US livestock supply chains; more bad news on ocean microplastics; total global deforestation down, but rates up in tropical forests; the palm oil as fuel debate; and, pandemic impact on migrant labour, in the news digest.
